Looking for a new guitar in the 300 - 400 range

Hi guys. I will be soon selling my guitar and i am looking for something new and need your help

Budget? - im looking for up to 400

Preferences? - Im looking for something like a Ibanez RG, or something with a thin neck to play fast shreddy type music on as i play metal. If not a Rg then im happy with suggestions

Pickups? - Humbuckers

New or Used? - I am looking to go used, but if there is any good deals on a new one i will take it

Location? - I am based in Leeds, England. I have a few shops around near me. There is Dawsons, PMT and music room (for new stuff), and a few 2nd hand shops also

Current Gear? - Ibanez xiphos, engl fireball

Thanks for the help

But a few more up, the older 550s are awesome guitars too.

The LTD neck is still very thin, just slightly different.

I will have a look at LTD then. I will be buying the guitar in about 2 weeks, so thats why i wanted a heads up for good models.

The only thing is LTD isnt very super strat like, which is what im looking for, but i will think about it and have a play on one

How about a Chapman? The new range that has just come out are awesome and great value for money!
the pickups are hot and sound sweet, mahogany body, maple neck, ebony fretboard, coil tappable electrics.... versatile as hell!!
just my 2 cents.....

I wouldn't bother with a Chapman. Average guitars with (probably) limited resale value.

If you're not going to buy my Schecter (:P) then Id seriously just lurk Gumtree or ebay for a nice MIJ RG. You won't get better.

Checkout the classifieds, there's plenty of LTDs within budget

(another shameless plug)

Take a look at the MH350, you should be able to pick one up used for around that price. Nice guitars.
